Science On Tap Untapped At Home

Hey, we miss you, too! Break-up your quaran-routine with this special Untapped series. During the month of April, Science On Tap will host a weekly movie screening via Netflix Party. Guests can talk to our Science On Tap experts through the chat function, asking questions in real time and learning more about the myths and misrepresentations in some of our favorite movies.

Invite your housemates and join us for this social-distancing Science On Tap. If you have a Netflix account and a home computer, you can join our party! This is a FREE event, but pre-registration is required as Netflix Party limits the number of guests for each session. Click here to register.

The Movie: The Witch (R)
In 1630 New England, panic and despair envelops a farmer, his wife and their children when youngest son Samuel suddenly vanishes. The family blames Thomasin, the oldest daughter who was watching the boy at the time of his disappearance. With suspicion and paranoia mounting, twin siblings Mercy and Jonas suspect Thomasin of witchcraft, testing the clan’s faith, loyalty and love to one another.

Meet our Expert: Hanna Polasky MSc – Hanna holds a Master of Science in Paleopathology from Durham University and an Undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Bryn Mawr. Her research interests are wide and varied, but always tie into the history of medicine with a focus on women in medicine, adaptive fashion, and marginalized identities. Hanna currently runs an Instagram account that focuses on the intersection of medicine and fashion (@pox_and_frocks).
